For MAC12 Christmas Audio Contest (I got 2nd place) Also submitted this for the December NAC just because (I got 5th place)

Me singing about the holidays in a crazy and grumpy way I guess. Yep...


Christmas time's come 'round again
Fa la la la la la la la
What are we supposed to send
Fa la la la la la
Still not cold enough to be snow
Fa la la la la la la la
2012 will let us know
Fa la la la la la

Jesus Jesus could you spare a dime
My friends gave me stuff and I'm out of time
A budget didn't work I don't got a single cent
And still no one bothered to get me a present

68 degrees perfect for a snowball fight
Play outside kids 'cuz there's plenty sunlight
Everyone can shop on a lovely winter day
The gift of giving is in what you pay

Christmas time's abound the air
Fa la la la la la la la
Got no tree so I don't care
Fa la la la la la
Too many gifts and no decor
Fa la la la la la la la
Cookies are burnt milk on the floor
Fa la la la la la

Santa Santa give me everything
I want to hear all those sleigh bells ring
Kill all my friends if that's what it takes
All I want this year are Christmas cakes

Giddy up giddy up travel for the holidays
Even though I don't wanna see them anyways
People drivin' just need to get out of my way
The gift of giving is in what you pay

That's a pretty eery song haha Huge props on having great vocals...well damn I don't have much to say about this one, it's really well made and original! A perfect submission in my eyes!

Congrats on winning the second place in contest and very happy Christmas to you and your family. Your place in the contest itself tells you about the standard of the song :)

Is it supposed to be evil?

I didn't notice any lines that were too long because the performance was spot on. I loved this.

lol macabre christmas.. why does this feel like tim burton's willy wonka hahaha...

some of the lyrics felt a bit.. crammed in there hahaha.. but like most of your submissions it feel very well thought out and very well constructed :)

also some vocal advice.. if you're gonna make a big gasp like you did before the second last chorus you should pull away from the mic when you do it otherwise the professionality feels a bit.. diminished.
